hi welcome to healthcaremagic

At 36 weeks of pregnancy, taking any antibiotic will not affect the growing fetus... taking any teratogenic drug at early pregnancy like 4 to 8 weeks will affect the fetus.. Augmentin contains penicillin and clavulunic acid... nothing much to worry, you can continue with drugs..
